About the show
Just imagine if you could meet with all the daring and dastardly characters from history. The only problem is, they all appear to be dead! Luckily the Horrible Histories gang are here to introduce us to the hearty heroes and vile villains of the long-ago past. Meet the ruthless Romans, recoil at Richard III and witness Elizabeth I’s abominable teeth! Escape King James I’s witch-hunt, peep into the life of Samuel Pepys and help Georgian detectives hunt for the headless man.
